As much a tradition as that roasted turkey, sweet potato casserole, and cranberry sauce, Black Friday (Nov. 29) and Cyber Monday (Dec. 2) are stuffed with tempting travel opportunities to gobble up this year. And there are some real goodies, with some of the deals even stretching beyond Cyber Monday — like that leftover turkey that on day five becomes turkey enchiladas — into Travel Tuesday and a few days beyond. There are lots of warm weather spots from California to Costa Rica, cultural getaways in Italy and Paris, European river cruises, and perks, too, like playing with kittens and puppies. New York City is all in with some incredible deals. (As low as $25 a night. No, that’s not a typo.) And New England is also wooing staycationers with ridiculous rates for all seasons.
So, dig in — here are 34 steals and deals. Be sure to read the fine print — blackout periods may apply, as well as stay restrictions and taxes and fees.
